Those certainly are Summit hops, and while they're tasty and can carry a smaller beer by themselves, I want more out of a DIPA. Really, it is quite tasty with a crisp mix of citrus and pepper. The juicy citrus provide a background taste for the lighter more subtle hops notes. The malt mostly provides balance without and real flavor, but I could go for some more bitterness in this DIPA.

Sticky pine hop nose. Clear orange amber. White head. Perfume nose. Sweer flavor. Perfume influenced. Grass is in there as well. Seems a little unbalanced. Feel is with a good carbonation and a decent enough liquid tone. Too sticky though. Overall an okay DIPA. Seems a bit green.

Appearance: clear orange in color with a 3" head that lasts forever. Thick lacing paints the glass.

Smell: huge malt sweetness, citrus, and bitterness are all easily detectable by the nose.

Taste: this is not a DIPA for the timid. Summit hops bring out a strong bitterness here. Nice malt profile balances out the strong bitterness, and some orange citrus and hints of alcohol rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: smooth from the start, dry and smooth at the finish. Bitterness lasts long into the aftertaste. Heavy in body.

Drinkability: despite the biggness of this beer I found it to be quite drinkable.Your tongue feels like you licked a rug (think dryness here) after two pints of this stuff, but this is a beer you should try while it is available. One of the best beer I have had at NH over the years.
